A young couple ‘meet cute’ at the La Brea Tar Pits, but things go awry when one shows up late for their date that night.

Roger Ebert – “Miracle Mile has the logic of one of those nightmares in which you’re sure something is terrible, hopeless, and dangerous but you can’t get anyone to listen to you. Much of the movie’s diabolical effectiveness comes from the fact that it never reveals, until the very end, whether the nightmare is real, or only some sort of tragic misunderstanding.”
